Vino de Eyzaguirre 1999 San Francisco de Mostaxal Colchagua Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($6.99)
This dark reddish-purple wine from Chile offers perfumed and ripe scents of Cabernet blackcurrant and dried herbs. Fresh and surprisingly well structured with acidity and light tannins, it could pass for a modest Bordeaux. US Importer: Cabernet Corp., Novato, Calif. (Sep 22, 2002)

FOOD MATCH: A natural partner with roast chicken.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
